Locks are easy snapping and secure[/info_list_item][info_list_item list_title=”Easy access from top of the bag” icon_type=”selector” list_icon=”Defaults-ok” info_list_link_apply=”no-link” title_font_size=”16″ title_font_line_height=”24″ desc_font_size=”13″ desc_font_line_height=”18″]This is one of the best features rarely seen on messenger-style bags.

Tripod that fit on top of the bag, staying there secure and easy to pull it up. Does not take place inside a bag.[/info_list_item][info_list_item list_title=”Compatibility with Peak Design accessories” icon_type=”selector” list_icon=”Defaults-ok” info_list_link_apply=”no-link” title_font_size=”16″ title_font_line_height=”24″ desc_font_size=”13″ desc_font_line_height=”18″]There are tons of other Peak Design accessories such as Capture camera clips and anchors  cane be fixed on the bag and will help you to mount your camera outside for an easy access.[/info_list_item][/info_list][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner el_id=””][vc_column_inner el_class=”” width=”1/6″][just_icon icon_type=”selector” icon=”Defaults-thumbs-down” img_width=”48″ icon_size=”96″ icon_color=”#dd3333″ icon_style=”none” icon_color_bg=”#ffffff” icon_color_border=”#333333″ icon_border_size=”1″ icon_border_radius=”500″ icon_border_spacing=”50″ icon_animation=”pulse” icon_align=”center”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner el_class=”” width=”5/6″][info_list position=”left” style=”circle with_bg” icon_border_style=”none” icon_border_size=”1″ border_color=”#333333″ connector_color=”#333333″ connector_animation=”” icon_bg_color=”#f7f8f9″ icon_color=”#dd3333″ font_size_icon=”18″][info_list_item list_title=”Feels little heavy when I carry it almost empty” icon_type=”selector” list_icon=”Defaults-remove” info_list_link_apply=”no-link” title_font_size=”16″ title_font_line_height=”24″ desc_font_size=”13″ desc_font_line_height=”18″]

Because of a good protection (and waterproofing) of the material this bag made of, it feels little heavy. So, if you have a small mirrorless with you, you may use “The Field Pouch” instead.[/info_list_item][info_list_item list_title=”Slight tendency to fall on a front side when loaded” icon_type=”selector” list_icon=”Defaults-remove” info_list_link_apply=”no-link” title_font_size=”16″ title_font_line_height=”24″ desc_font_size=”13″ desc_font_line_height=”18″]I’ve noticed that when bag if fully loaded, it may not want to stay straight when placed on a ground, falling on front. Such behavior is more evident when heavy things are placed on top, and the narrow base can’t support the lost balance.[/info_list_item][info_list_item list_title=”Expensive: $249 for the bag” icon_type=”selector” list_icon=”Defaults-remove” info_list_link_apply=”no-link” title_font_size=”16″ title_font_line_height=”24″ desc_font_size=”13″ desc_font_line_height=”18″]Well, this is hardly to be the cons, as a premium-grade gear cost premium price. However, I see what every penny is spend for: the quality of materials, design and build is exceptional.[/info_list_item][/info_list][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”” parallax=”” parallax_image=”” bg_type=”” parallax_style=”” bg_image_new=”” layer_image=”” bg_image_repeat=”” bg_image_size=”” bg_cstm_size=”” bg_img_attach=”” parallax_sense=”” bg_image_posiiton=”” animation_direction=”” animation_repeat=”” video_url=”” video_url_2=”” u_video_url=”” video_opts=”” video_poster=”” u_start_time=”” u_stop_time=”” viewport_vdo=”” enable_controls=”” bg_override=”” disable_on_mobile_img_parallax=”” parallax_content=”” parallax_content_sense=”” fadeout_row=”” fadeout_start_effect=”” enable_overlay=”” overlay_color=”” overlay_pattern=”” overlay_pattern_opacity=”” overlay_pattern_size=”” overlay_pattern_attachment=”” multi_color_overlay=”” multi_color_overlay_opacity=”” seperator_enable=”” seperator_type=”” seperator_position=”” seperator_shape_size=”” seperator_svg_height=”” seperator_shape_background=”” seperator_shape_border=”” seperator_shape_border_color=”” seperator_shape_border_width=”” icon_type=”” icon=”” icon_size=”” icon_color=”” icon_style=”” icon_color_bg=”” icon_border_style=”” icon_color_border=”” icon_border_size=”” icon_border_radius=”” icon_border_spacing=”” icon_img=”” img_width=”” ult_hide_row=”” ult_hide_row_large_screen=”” ult_hide_row_desktop=”” ult_hide_row_tablet=”” ult_hide_row_tablet_small=”” ult_hide_row_mobile=”” ult_hide_row_mobile_large=””][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_text_separator title=”Where to buy” title_align=”separator_align_center” align=”align_center” color=”custom” border_width=”3″ el_width=”90″ accent_color=”#dd3333″][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner el_class=”” width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”227525″ alignment=”center” border_color=”grey” img_link_large=”” img_link_target=”_blank” link=”https://www.peakdesign.com/product/bags/”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner el_class=”” width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”227526″ alignment=”center” border_color=”grey” img_link_large=”” img_link_target=”_blank” link=”https://www.peakdesign.com/product/bundles/”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner el_class=”” width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”227527″ alignment=”center” border_color=”grey” img_link_large=”” img_link_target=”_blank” link=”https://www.peakdesign.com/product/clips/”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]
